A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on another web server and could be restored if something happens. This option is very efficient, because you cannot know if a script update won't go wrong or if you won't delete something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. If your site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be small, depending upon the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer isn't very feasible, due to the fact that you would need to do it at least once per day and you can still lose data in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your web hosting provider, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, given that some providers generate backups only once per week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with a website that's being used and updated all the time, such as an online store, for instance.
